About me and my therapy practice

I have worked as a qualified counsellor since 2002 with adults, young people and families in various settings: a GP surgery, charity, low-cost clinic, primary and secondary schools and in private practice. Prior to my counselling training I worked in the fields of mental health, homelessness, drug and alcohol rehabilitation. 

I currently work in private practice and one secondary school and offer long and short-term individual work with adults and teenagers. I also work with children and parents together.  I offer face-to-face counselling and online work for those who are 16 and over.

My approach is psychodynamic, offering a creative, boundaried, safe and confidential space for clients to explore their past, present and future. I am led by the client - the issues they would like to bring and what they would like to achieve in the counselling. I give time and attention to what takes place in the room, in the here and now. It is a collaborative space, my stance being strongly relational, valuing the importance of relationships and our experience of these throughout our lives.

Adults and young people I have worked with have faced a range of difficulties and life challenges. These have included: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, family separation, loss and trauma, bereavement, relationship difficulties, living with long term physical or mental ill health, addiction and self-harm.

My practice room is located in central Lewes, 5 minutes walk from the train station and bus routes and 2 minutes from a public car park.
